Dancers love books and books make great gifts. Several professional dancers have written books to inspire the next generation of dancers. Karen Kain recently published a picture book version of The Nutcracker. We also love that Misty Copeland found a second career as an author. So far, Our favorite books written by her are Firebird and BunHeads.
There are so many great gifts that celebrate the Art of Dance. Whatever you choose, it is the thought that counts. And if all fails, dancers love the gift of time. We want to wish all of our dancers and dance families a safe and happy holiday season.
